bulloney. If Katrina had hit a blue state none of this would have happened. What happened was all the fault of the RAT politicians in Louisiana and NO. The people have nobody to blame but themselves for electing them.

I agree in that regard. I am talking to a situation whereby defined preps would have been put in place. Mississippi did well but the storm still caused great devastation. No planning can stop that.
But the real time failures of Nagin and the Gov. were monumental, I agree.
Katrina actually hit MS much harder than LA. New Orleans was really only side-swiped. I remember TV early next morning talking about how NO had dodged another bullet and showing video of high-rise hotels with only a few broken windows.
NO was not really hit by a hurricane. It was flooded. The levees broke, with most of the breaks being well below the levels they were supposed to withstand. There was remarkably little wind damage in the city.
